The World is becoming a tough place to live in. There is a visible lack of compassion which leads to unhappiness and suffering. Here is a little secret to develop compassion in your everyday life!
Selfishness is the greatest enemy to Compassion. It is not easy to overcome selfishness. Though a little of it is needed to make sure that you get all essentials in life, there is certainly a limit.
So what’s the secret to overcome selfishness and develop compassion?
Realize and Accept the impermanent nature of life.
Impermanence of life is a true fact. But our minds are trained to ignore or overlook this fact. We believe that we will live for ever in this world. This makes us more selfish to accumulate everything beyond the necessity. And when all these limits are broken, compassion is gone!
So the next time you must make an non-compassionate decision, think about the impermanence of life. It is a little secret, but it works!

Get out of Auto-Pilot
Do you drive to work everyday, with your mind full of plans for rest of the day? Do you eat looking at the television or mobile device, not caring about what goes into your body? Welcome to the Auto-Pilot world!
Get out of auto pilot. Enjoy your drive or ride. Feel the wind blowing on your face. Enjoy the sun rays that are bathing you. Be lost in every sweet scent that reaches your nose. Be present in the situation, both physically and mentally.
Stop being Judgmental
Another aspect that takes the real joy out of everyday life is being judgmental to things happening around you. Judging things using your filter handicaps you from truly experiencing the situation.
I don’t mean to say that you should never make judgments about such things.
Live the moment and keep your judgment for later. That’s what mindfulness is all about.
Feel your breathe quite often
Breathing is the basis of our life. But when was the last time you felt the breathe moving in and out of your body? If not do it right now. Do it often. Do it when you must make decisions. Do it when you are stressful. Do it when you are experiencing something breathtaking.
